, there is no disagreement between us. this banking scandal is appalling. it is outrageous that homeowners may have paid higher mortgage rates and small businesses may have paid higher interest rate because of illegal activity in the city. people want to know that crime in our banks, crime in our financial services, will be pursued and punished like crime on our streets. as well as that, they want rapid action to make sure this cannot happen again. in my view, the most important thing it is swift and decisive. get going as fast as possible, report as fast as possible. transparent and open at every stage. that's why i favor a public parliamentary environment. i want to legislate on this starting next year. >> mr. speaker, i do understand concerns about speed. there are concerns also the inquiry being talked about is far too narrow. when we know the problems go much wider. >> i believe there is a way forward we can agree upon. we have a two part inquiry that is constructed by christmas to report on the scandal. the second part is a 12 month at a much wider area of the culture within the industry. that sat

[shouting] >> mr. speaker, i do not think the prime minister gets it. the depth of public concern. i do hope he will reconsider his position, but he mentions the inquiry and says they are implementing it. i do t
